The Vietnam News Agency reports that the first wind farm in Vietnam went into operation on 18th April. The project in the province of Binh Thuan currently consists of 20 turbines with a combined capacity of 30 MW. After the final expansion phase the Binh Thuan Wind Power Plant will have a total of eighty 1.5 MW turbines.

At the opening ceremony the Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc praised the efforts of Binh Thuan Province and Vietnam Renewable Energies JSC, who financed the project with around US$ 110 million. For the first two years of operation the Fuhrländer turbines will be looked after on-site by five German specialists.
